Boc, Raymond-Alone in the Fog

This image was taken with my infrared converted camera and printed in monochrome. Fog allowed me to isolate the subject yet leave enough detail in the background to give context and tell a story. The infrared spectrum brightens photosynthetic elements such as grass and leaves providing further contrast between the horse and its surroundings. Woodville, VA. Alone in the Fog infrared photograph on fine art paper 13x19 $400 Ray Boc

Boc, Raylond_Spring Afternoon

This image was taken with my infrared converted camera with color manipulation. It is a combination of vegetation in grayish-peach tones and everything else in bluish-grey or a blend of the two resulting in image with a unique perspective. Rather than a color image where all is obvious to the eye, we have an image that requires thoughtful exploration to appreciate the story in the image. Woodville, VA.
